It's always a tough call when we visit the mountain wineries - views looking down, or views looking up (that is, being on top of a mountain, or in a valley). Three wineries in each category fit the bill perfectly and this post will examine three favorites in the valley, looking up at the mountains. Read full article at Virginia Wine Notebook

The original setting was set up for equestrian polo by Texans in 1996 and by 1998 the owners were convinced that their properties were ideal for vineyards. Though we came a bit late for normal service, the staff sized us up quickly and readily accommodated our requests for tasting specific wines. Beautiful setting with the addition of a food truck at the entrance of the tasting room serving crab salad, shrimp & lobster rolls and other items that would pair well with the wine offerings. What a different and neat idea for those sitting around with a King Family Vineyards ... Show more...

Having said that, it had been a couple years since my last visit, so it was nice to reacquaint and see what’s new.

King Family sits in that “sweet spot” on the edge of the Shenandoah National Park along with a ... Read full review
